Who Taught You How To Hate

  • I hear the voices echoing around me
    Angered eyes that don't even know who I am
    Looking to kill again (they will kill again)
    As the unknown enemies surround me
    Wicked laughter resonates inside my head
    And I am filled with dread (and adrenaline)
    What did I do, why do I deserve this?
    So we're different, why do I deserve to die now?
    Give me a reason why?

    Then it all goes a blur, let instinct take flight
    Find my hands on his throat, yet hear myself say

    Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
    'Cause it isn't in your blood
    Not a part of what you're made
    So let this be understood
    Somebody taught you how to hate
    When you live this way, you become
    Dead to everyone

    A father's pride, my son walking beside me
    I look around and marvel at the children play
    In perfect disarray (so innocent)
    No judgment, pure exhilaration
    Not to wipe the colours of it on their minds
    Nothing realigned (all different)
    There's always one who plants an evil seed and
    creatures here to pull you to the other side
    Into a world of lies

    Everything is unsure when you lost your sight
    Can it still be if you're what made you this way?

    Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
    'Cause it isn't in your blood
    Not a part of what you're made
    So let this be understood
    Somebody taught you how to hate
    When you live this way you become
    Dead to everyone (you're not anyone)

    Oh, oh

    Lost all innocence
    Invested in arrogance, you burn all your life (no telling you)
    No deliverance, consumed by the best events of hate
    Don't deny
    Deep in your heart does it still remain?
    Do you think you can bring it back to life again?
    Is it still in your soul? (no saving you)
    Where's the deviant?
    The unholy remnant that has made you this way?
    Lay before the disdain

    Tell me who, who taught you how to hate
    because it isn't your blood
    Not a part of what you're made
    So let this be understood
    Somebody taught you how to hate
    When you live this way you become (you become)

    Tell me now, who taught you how to hate
    'Cause it isn't in your blood
    Not a part of what you're made
    So let this be understood
    Somebody taught you how to hate
    When you live this way you become (you become)

    You become
    Dead to everyone (you're not anyone) Writer/s: Dan Donegan, David Draiman, Kevin Churko, Mike Wengren
